October is here! Fall is in full swing and we are getting closer to my favorite month. October is kind of my prep month for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I like to make sure I have my ducks in a row and everything prepared for the holidays. Also, now that there are two babies in the house planning a Halloween costume will be a little more difficult. I am hoping brilliance strikes me very soon. (That’s usually how I come up with our costumes) So today I am going to share with you my monthly goals: October love & 3 things I’m loving.

Here is a recap of last month’s goals.

Now I did not accomplish hardly any of my goals but I did make a lot of movement towards accomplishing those goals. Also, Irma really threw a wrench in my plans for the entire month. I was forced to take two weeks off of blogging. One week leading up to the storm and one week after the storm. Preparing for a hurricane is not as easy as packing your bags. We had to bring in everything from the outside. Flags, patio furniture, potted plants. Board up the windows, which took several days. Do all the laundry since I didn’t know if we would have water post-storm. Bag ice and freeze gallon bags of water. I did such a good job of packing my freezer that for three days, without power, my food stayed frozen. Which means we saved a lot of money!

Then post-storm we had to undo everything we did. There was so much clean up that needed to be done which took a couple of days. I did not have access to the internet till Thursday, it technically wasn’t mine it was my parent’s internet ;). We ended up staying with my parents for an entire week because they got power back fairly quickly and our house didn’t get power until the following Friday night. Needless to say, Irma really made September difficult.

I am hoping that this month I can accomplish some of my personal goals. For me, I think the key is scheduling the task. Setting aside dedicated time to do those things. I will let you know how it goes!

Now, here are my goals for October!

3 THINGS I’M LOVING!

1. Bread Pan – At some point during October I make Pumpkin bread so a bread pan is a must. It is so delicious and a very simple recipe AND it is a family recipe which makes it even better! Be on the lookout for the recipe later this month 🙂

 

2. Coffee Maker – Drinking coffee is a must during the Fall. For me, it brings comfort and makes everything feel cozy. Plus if you put a dash of nutmeg on top of the grounds it cuts into the acidity and makes it taste like Fall! I also personally own this particular coffee maker and love it!! Highly recommend it!

 

3. The latest installment in the marriage series. I share the one piece of advice EVERY married couple needs to hear. CLICK HERE to check it out! You won’t be sorry you did. 😉
